We have been here 4 times previously for lunches and dinners when using the Marina and have raved about the food, however this year our seafood was distinctly average and the service the same, less variety than before and not anything better than many cheaper seafood restaurants we used this we. It may be the only restaurant in the marina... More

A really great location on Kerrera Island overlooking Oban . The food is great when you get there, but the biggest drawback is the ferry. It only runs once an hour and only takes 12 people, so if it is full it will come back for you but that takes 20 minutes.The other drawback is that it shuts at 9pm.... More

We had a meal here two years ago and it was very good , attentive service , great seafood and a lovely view across the harbour to Oban.So we booked again this year. I used the contact form on the website and there was no reply. I emailed Oban Marina and they said they would book for me. Again I... More

It took a very long time to get my food and it was soggy but really really dry. Wouldn't go there again.

This was my second visit. The first time I really enjoyed it. This time, not so. It started off badly. The ferry taking us to Kerrera was full, and, as per the restaurant's website, if this is the case another ferry comes straight back over for remaining passengers, and so the 'captain' said she'd be back in 20 minutes. She... More

We sailed to the Waypoint with a friend on one of the very few hot & sunny days we have had this summer and the experience we had was bordering on cringeworthy. Service was slow - actually, we were told that the oven was ‘out’ and that we would have a wait of about half an hour. - This was... More

Well.....I was just so disappointed, travelled all way from south uk, and family took me for a treat, as had been so good, wee boat trip was fun and all looked so good, however it seemed that the chef was trained in the 1980s...as everything was garnished with orange! Starter of king prawns, in ginger and lime came , and... More

In Oban visiting family and thought it would be a nice treat to go over on the little ferry for lunch. Having been before, we knew the ferry times and booked a table for 1.30pm (5 adults and 3 children). Couldn't all fit in the ferry so 4 went over to sort the table. First half of our party arrived...

I believe this is a bit of a "hidden secret" you catch the boat from Oban Harbour over to the Waypoint Grill restaurant, we stopped by and had lunch along with a bottle of wine and found the whole experience fab , prices are reasonable and the staff chatty but efficient , cant really complain especially when the suns out...
